Video Frealane Performing Never Too Late



Neil and Melissa of World Winder travel great distances for music.  We’ve seen local bands in Ecuador, national and international acts in Argentina, and even made a musical pilgrimage to Nashville, Tennessee.

But since we were born and raised in New York, we enjoy coming back to catch live shows.  This video features Frealane a band based in NYC.  The song is called “Never Too Late”.  For band info check



Video The Mighty SPECTRUM Band

It is hard to believe that Melissa and I have been back from our world travels for nearly eight months.  Since returning from our exploration of South America and Europe, we haven’t slowed down much.

After returning to New York we sought business advice from banking professionals including Michael Saccardo of Chase.  Michael made us feel comfortable about our decision to go into business for ourselves.  Our background is in education, so changing our mindset from teaching to business is integral for our success.

Besides dishing solid  financial advice, Michael also gave us a tip on a local group called The Mighty SPECTRUM Band.  A few months later,  he invited us to our first Rockland Boulders game at Provident Bank Park.  After the game the staff allows fans to stay at the Bridge Bar and that is where the band was jamming.

Today’s video features a road side attraction in West Texas.  Is Cadillac Ranch an eyesore or an art project?  The song is by a band called El Atolón de Funafuti from Argentina.  Check out their website

Video The Narrowbacks at D&D’s



Melissa and I have traveled around the world and I’ve had a chance to shoot live music in Argentina, Iceland, and Ecuador.  But this video features something a bit closer to home.  The band is The Narrowbacks from Pearl River, New York.  You can find more information about them at  The band was playing at D&D’s Restaurant & Pub in New City, NY.  D&D’s has long been a local favorite and regular acts are brought in on rotation.

The Narrowbacks will be playing this weekend on Sunday, June 9th so check out their website for more details.

Video of Muir Woods featuring Jimmy, AWOL and the Freak



Now that we are back from our travel bloggers’ conference TBEX Toronto, World Winder is on a short travel hiatus.  I am looking for ESL teaching and professional development jobs in the NYC area.  We are working with local organizations and artists.

Last night we had a chance to see our good friend Jimmy McDonald perform comedy at Levity Live in the Palisades Center.  Jimmy has been entertaining crowds for years while giving commentary during Suburbia Roller Derby bouts in Yonkers, New York.  We look forward to catching Jimmy again soon.

But for now we”ll have to settle for spotting him on our newest video.  This video features footage from Muir Woods in California.  Muir Woods is a small park perfect for multi-generational families to have a nice stroll.  It is an easy side trip from San Francisco and can be visited in conjunction with wine tastings in Napa Valley, Sonoma Valley, or many lesser known regions.  We visited Muir Woods and nearby wineries with a crew featuring AWOL, Julie, Jimmy, and the Freak.

The music featured in the video is by an Argentine band called El Atolón de Funafuti.  I met them in Buenos Aires.  The song is called “Los Cuervos”.  Thanks to the band and the manager.  Check them out at
